Nine dangerous products recalled from the Irish market over safety concerns. Most are children's items.
A report released today by the European Commision on consumer product withdrawals included a total of nine dangerous items recalled from the Irish market.
The European Commission report also shows that nearly 2500 consumer products were either pulled from European markets or stopped before they could even enter the EU.
The products affecting Irish consumers were mainly children's items, and included a child's car seat adaptor, a laptop computer, an air hockey table, baby's teething necklaces, and even a brand of baby's slippers.
Information from the Commision website indicates that toys is the most common notified category at 28 percent followed by clothing, textiles and fashion items at 23 percent.
All of the items were withdrawn from Irish stores. While people who may have already purchased them are being asked to return the items them as they are considered dangerous and could cause injury.
